Middlebury College Library

With a history spanning across more than two centuries, Middlebury College is a unique institution, among the most highly regarded liberal arts colleges, with a reach extending from our main campus in Vermont's Champlain Valley to specialized and graduate programs located around the world.

Special Collections and Archives at the Middlebury College Library serves as a research laboratory for both the Middlebury community and independent scholars.  We welcome researchers to explore our collections of rare books, archives, manuscripts, photographs, audio and video recordings, and other rare and unique materials that tell the story of our collective past.

Our collections are broad in scope and cover a variety of media and realia.  As part of our firm commitment to open research and scholarship, we are dedicated to sharing digitized and born-digital archival materials in our collections to whatever extent practicable, and are excited to present these items from our collections via the Internet Archive.

This clip from the late 1930s to early '40s takes us to the Snow Bowl with the Middlebury College Ski Team. After runs down the slalom course and ski jump, we are even treated to an exhilarating ski stunt. If you're impressed enough to try out skiing for yourself, you're in luck: Snow Bowl membership is only $1 and allows you to hit the slopes for just 40 cents a day! For more information or permission to use this clip, please contact Special Collections and Archives, Middlebury College,...
